In Maths, we are focusing on our 3 and 4 times tables. We have been learning to cool songs to remind us. In addition to this, we are now beginning to see how we can use this knowledge to help us with more complicated, written multiplication using the grid method. 


In English,  we are learning how to write a non-fiction text. We have been using this 'Shocking Styles' text to look at some weird and wonderful fashion that people have worn throughout the centuries. Did you know what some women wore wigs that had lived birds in them?! 

In Science, we are looking at rocks and soils. We will find out how rocks and soils are formed and what different properties they have.

In Geography, we are learning about countries within Europe. We will be looking at comparing these with our own country and where they are on a map. 

In RE, we are learning about Easter and why it is such a special season. We are also looking forward to celebrating and preparing with those children who have decided to take their First Holy Communion this year.
